2. Bodyweight Sissy Squat:This exercise is veryhelpful for the lower body. Julian says: “Just like the pull up, pushup,or dip, the sissy squat is a foundational bodyweight exercise that must bemastered if you want to max out your quad gains.”Q: Why is this exerciseso effective? A: The more your knee travels forward past your toes, the more directly youstress the quadriceps which helps your quads in being strong and takes the problemslike glutes and hamstrings out.Julian says: “Ialways go to failure on these, as I would on most bodyweight exercises! I hitaround 3 to 4 sets but I mix up the tempo frequently, which drastically changesthe amount of reps I get per set. If I do just a basic up-down tempo I could goas high as 50-plus reps per set. But I often do 10-second negatives, whichwould push me down closer to the 10 to 15 rep range.
“3. Leg Extension:The leg extensionexercise targets your quadriceps. If this exercise is done correctly, itstrengthens your quadriceps.Q: Can you build greatquads without the leg extension?A: Absolutely. There are different exercises also which helps us to buildmassive quads.

But if you want to add that sharp detail and crispfeathering, leg extensions are a must!”He (Julian) himself recommends4 sets of 20 and sometimes 30 reps on these. When he occasionally dips into thelower 8 to 12 rep range with heavier weights, he uses full contraction pausesor “quad squeezes” on every rep with his knees fully extended to getthe proper output.
